Bookseller Opens New Horizons with Flexible, Easy-to-Use ERP Solution


With roughly 120 employees at its headquarters in Bethany, Missouri, and independent sales representatives located around the United States, Gumdrop Books provides books and services for school libraries.

Business Situation

Gumdrop Books wanted to start from a "clean base" with an enterprise resource management (ERP) solution that would enable the company to stay current and add new lines of business and new features like EDI and improved web integration.

Business Benefits

By replacing its old, heavily customized ERP solution with Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, Gumdrop Books gains the flexibility it needs to adapt to changing demands and new market opportunities. In addition, the company can empower employees to accomplish tasks faster and make better-informed decisions.
